Man remanded for larceny
A man accused of breaking into a home and stealing a number of items was remanded in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
Charged with housebreaking and larceny is Carlos Chen, 40, of no fixed address.
Allegations are that, on October 21, the complainant securely locked up her Havendale, Kingston 19, dwelling and left for work at 6:55 a.m. She returned about 11:50 p.m., and discovered the grill was cut as well as four metal blades removed from a window.
A number of items were missing including a 30 inch flat-screen TV valued at $55,000, 10 fragrances valued at $30,000, two pairs of female shoes valued at US$89 each, alcoholic beverages valued at $15,000 and a quantity of costume jewellery valued at $10,000.
The accused was later held by the police and the items recovered.
In court, Chen was remanded by Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey, until November 17, for sentencing.
